Welcome to Your Guide for Maintaining
Natural Health and Wellness

There are simple guidelines that will empower you to maintain a state of natural health and wellness by choosing a holistic approach to living life consciously.

As you start exploring the information and resources on this site, I'd like to introduce myself and tell you why I've put the Holistic-Wellness-Basics website together.

Nony backpacking

My name is Nony Morgan and I would like to share my experience and expertise with you. I've studied and practiced natural health care for over 3 decades.

During this time I've also worked as a Registered Nurse, then as a Holistic Chiropractor and Wellness Consultant - with a sub-specialty in holistic nutrition. I loved working in the healing arts, and now I also love my life of retirement. But...

... I really miss sharing information with people about natural health care.

I know that my path in life is to offer guidance that helps people to make empowering choices about their health. I'm continuously learning new and rediscovered methods and ideas about a holistic approach to living consciously, and it's fun to apply much of this to my own lifestyle.

The beginning - starting from long, long ago...

When I was a teenager my pet beagle, Peppy Doll, was snooping around in the garage and got a fish hook stuck inside her mouth. My mother panicked...

"Oh m'God, oh m'God... what should we do? Oh m'God."

I opened Peppy Doll's mouth, pulled the hook through, snipped the line and voila - end of drama. Mom said, "Nony, you were so calm handling that emergency; you should be a nurse."

So off I went to Providence College of Nursing, and afterwards I started my first job working at San Francisco General Hospital. This was a very exciting time in San Francisco - and part of the scene was a new consciousness about eating.

It really made sense to me... fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains - grown without pesticides. Raw or lightly steamed vegetables to preserve the nutritional quality - instead of boiled into oblivion. Yep... made sense.

The New Age had arrived and I hopped aboard.

What a treasure trove of newly offered and revived health information! I took classes in reflexology, shiatsu, polarity therapy, yoga, meditation, holistic nutrition, herbal medicine, massage, creative visualization... on and on. I taught classes in Basic Holistic Health to nurses seeking 'Continuing Ed' credits. It was an exciting era!

As the years went by, I became increasingly frustrated with conventional medicine. I had started a new job in ICU and was feeling more and more compromised. Many of the drugs, in the dosages I was ordered to give, were extremely hepatotoxic or nephrotoxic... meaning they could severely damage the liver or kidneys.

The meaning of iatrogenesis was becoming uncomfortably clear to me. It means that the illness or symptoms are caused by the treatment.

And, in my enthusiasm to share my new knowledge about nutrition, I began to talk to my patients about making dietary changes to improve their health. Whoops - I started getting a lot of flak for that because, as I was told... Food doesn't have anything to do with health, and vitamins are unnecessary and useless.

I knew that was BS.

Hmm... I was in the wrong movie.

After much soul-searching, I decided to leave the nursing profession and I eventually enrolled at Palmer College of Chiropractic-West. I love hands-on treatment, and I knew my degree would also give me the freedom to offer the kind of health guidance I believe in.

I often worked nights and double-shift weekends as a private duty nurse to help pay for chiropractic college. This was before hospice became widely available, and many times I would be assigned to care for people who chose to die at home. It was a privilege to share that important transition with people and I learned a lot with them.

After graduation I opened a chiropractic office in the Napa Valley in northern California. Some of my sub-specialties were craniosacral therapy and nutrition.

For the next 20 years I offered my clients a holistic approach to their health issues. This provided many opportunities to witness the dramatic and positive results of following a course of natural self-healing.

I love to travel and several years ago I decided to follow a dream. I sold my house and most of my possessions, bought a 4WD Sportsmobile campervan, and started traveling the North American continent.

Here are a few of my satellite-office locations where I'm developing this website.

I don't miss managing a brick-and-mortar business, but I do miss sharing information with people who are seeking to improve their health. So my path led me here. Now I can offer guidance that can significantly improve the quality of your life.

If you're just here to browse, carry on. You'll find a lot of interesting and useful information.

Or... are you ready to begin an empowering journey towards optimal health?

Perhaps you're fairly new to the concept of living a healthy holistic lifestyle. Don't let yourself get overwhelmed; take it one step at a time.
